On this Thanksgiving Eve in the US, it is easy to recount the things for which I am grateful: my family, my friends, my health, etc. Monday will be 6 years since I exited from my service in the Marine Corps. At that time I was not sure I would even stay in tech as a career (law school still seems like a good backup plan). I am incredibly grateful and humbled by my career and the trajectory it has taken in recent years. A substantial part of this has been involvement in the tech community, especially the VMware community. I’m far from the only person that has built a career on the back of the VMware community. I am thankful for the guidance and inspiration I have received over the past six years.
Today VMware announced the recipients of the annual VMware vExpert award. A vExpert is someone that has demonstrated significant contributions to the VMware community, as well as the desire and willingness to share expertise with others.
I am proud to share that I was awarded the vExpert title for 2014.
Congratulations to all the other VMware evangelists, partners, and employees that have made the list for this year.
Please see the full list for all awardees.
